This Mom Makes Awesome Costumes, Masks And Toys Out Of Cardboard Boxes For Her Kids

According to a mom & artist Alicia Brown: “Hi there my name is Alicia, I live and love in Melbourne with my two boys and my partner. There is so much I love about motherhood and one of my favorite things about being a mother is that I get to make stuff for my kids. Life doesn’t get much better then seeing my childrens faces light up with joy when I’ve made something special just for them.”

“I started making things for them when the toys and dress-up costumes that I thought they needed for imaginative play seemed too expensive. I thought, “I could make that”.”

“I love working with cardboard cos it’s free and so versatile and I’d hate to see a perfectly beautiful crisp cardboard box be thrown away. There is so much more to cardboard than one use. It has so much to give. All it needs is some imagination. I do make other things for them that are not cardboard but it just seems that I always return to cardboard.”

“I really want to make magical memories for my kids and for them to unleash their imaginations. I hope by seeing me creating these things for them that it helps with that. I would love to make alot more for them but obviously like other parents I find it hard to find the time.”
